I always feel very conflicted about this series of movies. I feel like, at some points, they just want to show lots of muscular gym bunnies is various states of undress. Yet, they somehow are able to end each story with a pleasant moral. I always wonder whether seeing these movies when I was younger would have helped or hindered my psychological development.
In Eating Out (the original) movie had a famous and provocative scene where Marc (gay) sucks off Caleb (straight) while Gwen (Marc's friend) has phone sex with Caleb on the telephone. Eat Out 2: Sloppy Second continues this theme of straight woman helping a gay guy to seduce an ambivalent/ambiguous guy.
However, in its characteristic tradition of pandering to lurid and prurient interests, this time it is an ambiguous straight guy that uses the ménage à trois to get to two gay guys together. It was almost a total break, but not quite -- Tiffani has to coax her ex-boyfriend to do it and provide some visual support during the actual sex.
As an interesting side-note, Two Filipina-Americans play the role of Asian-immigrant nail care specialists only speaking some Sino-Tibetan or Austrasiatic language.
The third installment of this light romantic-comedy series is worth watching if you have extra time and a little critical reflection on some of the collective personalities in urban American gay culture or if you like watching movie with half and fully naked buff white guys.
